Mine would be a Ruger SP 101 357 MAG 4 in barrel, stainless. Went with a revolver because this would be the only gun I could have. The SP is still concealable with a five shot capacity. Double action so a speed loader or strip for quick reload is an option.
Self Propelled Howitzer..... M109A6 Paladin .... 155 MM
its a little bulky but for the run of the mill self defense situation its awesome and it really has the ability to reach out and touch someone.
But the Paladin is only good out to about 300 yds......
Seriously, I'd have to meditate on the subject. I bought each of my pistols because I wanted them, and I like them all. If I could only have one, I guess it would be 9mm, and the platform would either be a G17 or a P226.
HK45 fullsize. Larry Vickers and Ken Hackathorne designed em and they made it to be "bomb proof" as they described it.
"Have gun....will travel"
Beretta 96 .40 cal.
If I had to get rid of everything and only keep 1 gun, it would by my S&W, model 19, 4", 357 mag.
if a handgun glock or 92fs in 9mm
a rifle - ar15
our military personnel can only have one and that is it - defending our country for 50 years
many wars - many situations - been defending their lives for a long time
Sig Sauer P226 for me
They just keep on working.
I've owned almost everything at 1 time or another. 15 years straight of buying and selling the gun I lost interest in, to pay for the next purchase.
Even owned a $3k and a $2.2k 1911 before. About 3 years ago, I caught the Beretta bug and slowly sold off some stuff to pay for more Berettas.
Now, at age 40... after losing tons of $'s over the years in these endeavors... The vast majority of what I have are Berettas. Fav platform by far...
My Beretta PX4 storm in 45 is a treat to use, I guess for a 'one' stop platform, it's that pistol, chambered for the ubiquitous 9mm round. It will never let you down, and is so easy to shoot accurately.
Safe shooting, all.
I guess it would be either my S&W Model 66 in .357 magnum, or the GP-100 - not because either is my favorite, but because they will shoot a variety of ammo, they have no mag or recoil springs to wear out, and they are accurate and powerful. This is what I would have if I had no real interest in guns, but needed someting for self defense that I would just put in my underwear drawer and forget - that's the only situation I can imagine in which I would have only one gun.
Ruger Sr9c ... I've put hundreds of rounds through mine and never had any problems with it.
Ruger SR9c , Shield and Nano have good reports on reliability.
My 1967 Ruger Blackhawk .357.
Definately my glock 9mm
